Villas in Corfu's West Coast
Corfu's West Coast is an entirely different proposition, more exposure to the open sea has created a ribbon of stunning sandy beaches right along the west coast. Often backed by steep cliffs, access in the olden days was often quite tricky but well worth it for the pristine beaches and friendly tavernas you'd find there. These days the access has been dramatically improved so everyone can enjoy their obvious pleasures, ideal for all the family. Slightly north of centre is the masterpiece that is Paleokastritsa; where the western mountain meet the sea it's formed several incredible bays, each with their own charming sandy beach and delightful spots to enjoy the views with a refreshing drink. Above the resort, stop at the Bella Vista and witness the views for yourself, it's an incredible spot. Also worth exploring and a day on the beach at Pelekas, Agios Gordis, Glyfada and perhaps Lake Korisson to the south, a freshwater lake right by the long beach that's a regular haunt for flamingoes.
